Inspire me

Hey guys I've been away for a while. I was overloaded with a full time job and as a full time student. Then my grandma got sick so I just pretty much droped out of this hobby. I fert everyday but then I didn't have time to do water changes. So I stop my fert routine as well trying not to over do it.

As a result, most of my tanks are in total chaos. I didn't lose all my plants but I lost alot of my most treasured plants. Algae and distress ever where.

Right now I kinda feel depressed about my tanks. I don't really feel motivated to try anymore. I just cleaned out the dead plants. I have a lot of replacing to do.

One of the things to replace is my inspiration. What aquascapes inspired u? Show me ur best tanks and just inspire me again.

I'm not a doctor in real life but I play one on this forum

have you thought about low tech & rich soil (mineralized, topsoil, ada aquasoil etc)?
make your life easier.

I don't have any cool looking tanks but I find nature pretty awe inspiring.

This isn't my tank but it's probably my favorite out of all the tanks i've seen so far.

It belongs to a member on aquaticplantcentral named Cliff Hui

Absolutely stunning.

thanks!
im really glad. lizards are awesome if you ask me. especially the tiny phelsuma. they are timid, but its really funny to watch them scurry into a hide.

I've always loved this scape. The sand waterfall effect is so neat
